We used the dj service for my daughter’s sweet 16 party. They were there early to set up, very professional, played a great set of music, played all the requests we had, and all for a fair price. I would highly recommend this company

Hired him for my Son's 5th Borthday party. He did an excellent job and kept all the kids entertained for the entire time he was there. Typically at kids parties people are standing around staring awkwardly and this made the event 10x's more exciting. He takes 0 management, comes in, sets up, handles his business, and all is well. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you next year :)

Eric Vaughn did a magic show at a birthday party for my 10 year old son and a roomful of his friends. To say he was a hit is a big understatement. The kids were enthralled, and Eric kept their attention for approximately 30-45 minutes, using several kids as "assistants" for some of his tricks. I would absolutely recommend Eric Vaughn for any type of event that needs excellent and affordable entertainment.

I would 100% recommend Pinky for your birthday party, event, really anything! We had her booked for 2 hours and she painted over 100 faces! We had a huge event with girls ranging from 18-22 and everyone loved it! She's so lively, fun and face painting doesn't have an age limit! Everyone loved her fun designs, and speed! She ended up staying an extra 30 minutes due to a long line and was absolutely amazing!!! Will definitely be booking again!!

Courtney was contracted to set up her photo booth for our Friday night party and return to take still shots during our banquet dinner on Saturday night. Both days, she showed up on time, engaged the crowd, and did an excellent job capturing our 30th year anniversary conference. I cannot stress how professional and fun she was to work with! The photo booth at the Friday night party was a huge hit; everyone LOVED it! I will definitely contact Blue Stone Studios for our next event.

We recently had a retirement party at my office and we hired Jason with LawrenceDJ to provide a photo booth for the festivities. We couldn't have been happier with this choice. Jason was a pleasure to do business with. He was able to work with our company on short notice. He helped us with updating our photo template so that it was exactly what we wanted. He was there to answer questions through email and texts. He took time out of his day on a day off to take my phone call and help us out. On the day of the rental, Jason showed up early to set up. He stayed a couple of extra minutes late to make sure any late-comers could still have their chance to have their photos taken. He provided real masks, hats, and props. He made sure that everyone who was in the pictures had their own photo strip to take with them. I was able to have him set up the booth in a conference room and leave him to run everything all day with absolutely no worries. We had a great time and I hope we get to do business with Jason in the future.

Wow! Truly amazed at how magical Laura made the whole face painting experience for the kids. Seeing their faces as they looked in the mirror when she was done was almost as wonderful as her beautiful artwork. I was also impressed with how fast she created these amazing images. None of the kids had to wait in line very long and nobody was disappointed in what was painted. Every kiddo had a unique image that made them all feel like stars of the party. I was given so many compliments by all the parents with how wonderful Laura was. So thankful I was given this idea from a friend, it was definitely a birthday party to remember! Thank you Laura!!!

Great service from first contact to the final picture. Everyone at our special birthday party loved the photo booth. The guest of honor and several guests had special needs, and your photographer was great at helping them enjoy the experience. We added the scrapbook option, so our guest of honor now has a unique way to remember everyone who was there.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a mariachi band?

    Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

    What is a photo booth rental?

    A party photo booth is a fun, interactive experience where guests can take a series of photos (usually three or four) that are immediately printed out on a strip as a keepsake. When you rent a party photo booth, the company sets up the booth or photo station at your event; a photographer staffs the booth and coaches guests on how to use it throughout the event. Often the photo booth rental company provides props like silly hats, wigs and glasses. There are different types of party photo booth rentals. An open-air booth has a curtain or backdrop that allows more freedom of movement and enables more people to use it at one time. The traditional enclosed photo booths that you may have seen at the mall or the fair tend to cost more to rent, as they are harder to transport and also cost more for the pros to purchase. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500.

    What does a fortune teller do?

    A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.  

    How many mariachis can a band have?

    A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.

    How much does a mariachi band cost?

    A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

    • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
    • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
    • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.
